I live in Northern California and love to go hiking in the nearby hills. This piece brings to mind the palette we see often in early Spring in the hills. This is an original oil painting on canvas, with 1.5 inch sides that are painted. Measures 12x12 inches square. I sign on the back of my paintings.
I am a painter. I have loved painting all my life. I studied Art and Art History at UC Berkeley, and have been painting professionally ever since. I have shown in galleries and museums all over California, and have sold hundreds of paintings all over the world, from New York, to Finland and Qatar. I am inspired by nature, color and emotion. Hopefully you will get a sense of calm, happiness, or wonder from what I paint. I'm not out to make political statements with my work, but to express joy and gratitude of life through the medium of oil paints. Claire Whitehead
